This is going to be a different kind of post…
I’ve been asked, by those making a feeble attempt to label me as crazy, if I believe I’m on a mission from God. Am I delusional?
Yes and no.
I do believe I’m on a mission from God. But, I’m not unique for this.
We’re all on a mission from God. When you wonder what’s wrong with the world, “how did things get so bad,” ask yourself; what have you done with your mission?
We’re all on a mission from God. But, most of “us” are shirking it.
Psalm 23:4 – Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Backed by such, is merely strolling through the valley good enough? Should it not be the goal of such a man to do more than be happy that he is safe?
“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” – Dante
It’s not hard to find doors upon which you can almost see those words…
Should it not be the objective, goal, mission, and duty of supposed good men to do more than nothing? Is it not true that the victory of evil needs nothing more than for good men to do nothing?
Then, doing nothing, and knowing the consequence, how can they still be named “good men?”
Seek out those places where hope is lost. Abandon your fear, and take some of that lost hope inside.
Even a small light shines bright in the blackest of pits, yet who goes in? What excuses are there? Do you have what it takes to be “that guy?”
Don’t just go for a stroll in the valley with your magical shield of rainbows and unicorns and fairy dust. Make evil decide to call in sick because it doesn’t want to deal with you. Do it without the magical fluff, even when you know there’s going to be hell to pay.
Those who can, must.
